The decorations are in place. The presents are purchased – well, almost. Next up? The glorious stage of wrapping. For some of us, that’s the not-so-fun part. But for our Assistant Stylist, Emma L.?

It’s official – the holidays are over. And if you’re anything like me, there’s a sea of crinkled-up wrapping paper left on your living room floor. But this year, instead of throwing it all out, I’m taking a cue from craft guru Martha Stewart and putting all that leftover paper to good use.

1. For post-holiday dinner parties, serve cocktails on a drink tray lined with leftover metallic paper.
2. Resolving to get organized for the New Year? Make it that much easier with these decorative box labels made from recycled wrapping paper.
3. Keep your place in all those books you were gifted with a homemade bookmark made of wrapping paper.
4. The best way to say thanks for that oh-so-sweet gift? A card made from the wrapping paper it came in.
